Best Song Survivor v2: Pop era

Please vote for your FAVOURITE song(s).
The top SEVEN songs from this era proceed to the Nineties Semi-Final.

Welcome to the Pop era round in Best Song Survivor v2! The object of this game is to find Interference's favourite U2 songs. Each album will be featured in a single round with the non-album tracks from its era. The amount of finalists from each era is based on seeding from the latest U2 Album Survivor. These rounds will last 48 hours and will be multiple choice polls where you vote for your favourite tracks (within reason). A suggestion is to vote for the amount of tracks that will proceed to the next round, although this is not a hard and fast rule. Remember that there is a tradeoff: if you vote for more songs, the power of each of your votes is dampened, but if you vote for fewer songs, you get to spread your influence less far.

Only original U2 songs with official studio releases will compete. However, you are free to vote on the basis of live versions, alternate versions, remixes, etc., as in the normal version of Survivor. Basically whatever you think best represents the song in your mind.

The result of the Passengers era round was decisive. There was no serious competition for the five finalist spots; five songs took the lwad and held onto it until the end.

(bold = qualified for finals)
1. Your Blue Room - 39 votes
2. Slug - 30
3. Miss Sarajevo - 27
4. Always Forever Now - 24
5. Beach Sequence - 20

=6. A Different Kind of Blue - 8
=6. Theme From Let's Go Native - 8
8. One Minute Warning - 5
=9. Elvis Ate America - 4
=9. United Colour - 4
11. Plot 180 - 3
=12. Corpse (These Chains Are Way Too Long) - 2
=12. Ito Okashi - 2
14. Bottoms (Watashitachi No Ookina Yumi) - 1
=15. Theme From The Swan - 0
=15. Viva Davidoff - 0
(Total voters: 42)

Discotheque, DYFL, Mofo, SATS, LNOE, Gone, WUDM

I like Holy JOe and North and south as well, though they're not my favourites. For Velvet Dress I take the album version, which is a snoozefest so I didn't pick it. The Jools Holland version though

My least favorite U2 album, but I do really enjoy a few songs off it. For me: Discotheque, Mofo, Miami, Please, North And South Of The River.

I have always North And South Of The River.

Is there a version without Sinead? I've only heard what I believe is the soundtrack version... Love that song.

I don't like this album quite as much as the next guy, but these five songs are really great.

Oh, and I find Mofo extremely overrated. :ducksandhides:
